Pink Floyd Icones Music - France, 2016 Pink Floyd in Oor - The Netherlands, 2016 Eclipsed magazine November 2016 with Pink Floyd

With the upcoming release of the now 28-disc Pink Floyd: The Early Years 1965-1972 box set (and the associated 2CD Cre/Ation highlights/sampler set) there are (unsurprisingly) a number of magazines available in various countries, all focusing their attentions and energies toward features on the band and their music.

There are three new magazine issues that have appeared in mainland Europe, and available now in selected stores and newsstands.

In France, the new issue of Music Icons (number 2) is focused on Pink Floyd. As with the other two magazines we mention in this news item, we've not seen the publication itself but in the publicity for it, they note that it contains: exclusive graphic work of Pink Floyd by Storm Thorgerson, a preview of the V&A exhibition in London in 2017 (with tickets to win), unpublished interviews with Roger Waters and David Gilmour, the true story of Animals, the complete discography, and a detailed look at the box set.

For those of you in The Netherlands, the November issue of Dutch magazine 'Oor' also has a cover story on the band - 'The early years of Pink Floyd'. Over 12 pages, there are nice colour photos, an overview of their early years (in The Netherlands), Syd, 'The Early Years' and the writer tries to find the tree they're leaning against in the '67 photoshoot in the Leidsjebosje (the one with Roger in the purple cape). The tree is gone… Our thanks to Liesbeth Bliek for the information on this particular magazine.

Finally, Michael Nickel kindly tells us about Germany's Eclipsed Magazine (issue dated November 2016) with a nice 1967-era shot of the Syd Barrett-era Floyd on the cover. The main article - Abende der Gegenkultur (Evenings of counterculture) includes Nick Mason talking about the "crazy early years: Syd, David, French girls and a treasure". In the magazine there is a special five page press interview with Nick, which took place in Hamburg in a conference room of Warner Records this year, and a special Peter Jenner interview about the early years of the band, conducted at the Haldern Pop Festival 2016.
